Colorado senator investigated for mortgage fraud

The Colorado Division of Real Estate is investigating allegations that a state senator and the mortgage company where he works engaged in false advertising.

Division Director Erin Toll says state investigators believe Republican Sen. Ted Harvey and the company where he works as a mortgage broker, American Home Funding, misled customers with an advertising flyer that looks like a government tax document. The flyer features the Statue of Liberty and warns that "a call to action is required."

It says in small print on the side that it's not a government document. Harvey said the notices are no different than those from other financial institutions and denies breaking the law.
